Mr, C. E. KitiR, inspector of
schools for the Islnnd of Hawaii,
went to Honolulu by Friday's
Kinnu for a conference with Super
intendent Babbitt, on business con
nected with his department.
Mr. King States that school work
is hampered in sonic localities by
lack of room, and that new school
houses arc to be constructed and
additions to present buildings made
in several localities. The most im
portant proposed building is the
Hilo High School, for which bids
arc now advertised.
At Makapala a two-room addi
tion is to be built to the present
three-room building, the present
building to be modified and divided
into two rooms. Bids on construc
tion were advertised for, to be
closed on the 15 hist. Construction
will do awny with renting and
afford better quarters.
At Olaa, 1 2-mile, a new two-room
.school house will be built nnd bids
on construction advertised for very
soon. . increased attendance acre
calls for more room.
At Hokalau, also, increased
attendance demands more com
modious quarters, and an entirely
new three-room building will be
put up. Plans under consideration
for the buildinc have just been re
turned to Superintendent Babbitt
by Mr. King with changes sug
gested. Bids will be called for
A. .two-room addition to the
school house at Honomti has been
decided upon, which will remove
the necessity of renting nt thnt
More or less definite plans are
under consideration, also, for build
ings or additions at Kaumana,

Herald straightened out and finally
"My friend Burns," he says,
"got there after all and will edit
the Hawaii Herold vice John U.
Smith, skiddooed. The Lone
Reindeer of the Yukon was only an
ad interim editor after all, but he
made an original, one while he was
at it. I hear that John U. came to
stay in spite of warnings to the
contrary, brought his snow-shoe
slippers and his cat and, whenever
one of the owners dropped in, put up
the sign "This is my Busy Day."
As soon as he could, he printed a
salulntpry and now he must let his
valedictory tread upon its heels. As
for Bums I predict that he will stir
up Hilo from the. beach all the way
to Rainbow falls and thnt Hilo, in

London, March 29.-The British
Museum has declined to pay
eighteen thousand pounds sterling
for the original of Nelsou's mem
orandum outlining the plan of the
battle of Trafalgar.
It was at Trafalgar, as . all
students of history know, thot Nel
son humbled the pride of the navies
of France and Spain, and confirmed
the supremacy of the sea to the
English. His victory is one of the
most glorious, if not the most glor
ious, in that long series that make
up English Naval history. But
there are some prices that are evi
dently deemed too high to pay for
even a moinento of such a battle as

has called down the High Sheriff
in the following letter, received on
the last "Kinnu:
Hilo, Hawaii, March 21, 1906.
High Sheriff Henry, Honolulu.
Sir: Your taking away our
prison gang was a terrible blow to
Hilo. As if our cup ot misery wns
not filled to overflowing, but you
must add to it.
One of the sights of Hilo to
tourists was, the Hilo jail the
morning guard mount the start
ing out to work of the prisoners
followed bv eattlinc guns nnd
prison keepers armed with blunder
busses to shoot down any poor cuss
who did not keep step according to
prison tactics it was all - very
You have deprived Hilo of a
large number of citizens. It is well
known that one-half of the popu
lation has left for California and
Oreg6n to seek work; the balance
are in jail or fast going there for
want of employment. What are
you going to do about it?
It was reported around town
this morning that the two Oregon
editors were taking their meals at
the jail at the expense of the Terri
torial government. Why is this
allowed? Can not what's left of
the community do the same? We
are all just as hard pushed.
Jim Stacker used to tell the peo
ple in his paper to go to Demos
thenes for their Sunday dinner,
but he always went to Akaua and
took his sinkers and colTee all
same common folks. But the sink
ers were too much for Jim. He
Well, I suppose Honolulu is as
hard up for citizens as Hilo, but we
do think that no favor should be
shown. The two Oregon editors
should have been sent down. They
would have been great drawing
cards for the Orpbeutn or Kaimuki.
For what you have done for
Hilo, may the Lord forgive you! I
can not. Yours truly,
THE HILO KICKER.
A Local Stcniuor.
George W. Smith, while away
on the refunding bill delegation,
saw the American-Hawaiian Steam
ship Co. people in New York about
a local steamer between San Fran
cisco and Honolulu. The company
has obtained tentative plans .for a
5oo-foot long, i6-knot steamer,
with capacity for 200 to 300 saloon
passengers and 9000 tons measure
ment for freight, or 5000 tons
weight of.sugar. Such a steamer
would make the single trip in five
and a half days and maintain a
2i-day schedule. The cost would
be $1,350,000. A contract would
be made with the A.-H. S. Co. to
operate the steamer, paying the
owning company the net receipts.
The Fleet Complete.
The awarding of the contract for
the steamship Isthmian, by the
American - Hawaiian Steamship
Company, completes arrangements
for the entire fleet for the Tehaun
tepec route as it is now proposed.
In the Pacific will be the Alaskan,
Arizonnn, Texan, Ncvndan and
Nebraskan, together with the
Mexican and the Columbian which
are building at the Union Iron
Works iu San Francisco. On the
Atlantic will be the American,
Oregonian, California!!, Hawaiian,
and the Isthmian the contract for
which was let recently as was an
nounced in the Star. Star.
Honolulu, The llctiiitirul.
John G. Wooley, the noted temp
erance lecturer, once at the head of
the national ticket of the Prohibi
tion party in the United States,
was recently in Honolulu, return
ing from New Zealand, ''Hono

too fair,a place to leave the blot of

seen Ihe beauty spots of the world

Dr. Nicholas Rusbe who Arrived"
from the Oricht id Ihc Siberia, is
quoted as follows in regard to the
situation in Russia: "The revolu
tion in Russia has just begun. It is
not over, nor are the revolutionists
being subdued, as is thought in
America. This spring will see
ninety million peasants supporting
the demand for n constitution,
guaranteeing free speech, universal
suffrage, liberty of the press and
republican forms of government.

the political history of the civilized

Democracy nutl Empire.
A democracy governing vast pos
sessions over sens tends in the course
of its rule to become less and less
democratic. ,Our own manner in
conducting the management of
India and crown colonics has in it
So far as is possible, India is
governed on the spot, and the
victory is, in fact, far more of a
ruler than some European monarchs.'
Until the government of the Philip-.
pities reaches some such stage as
this and the same may be said of
Porto Rico the results will not be
We hold that the wise warning
of Thucydidesas to the difficulty of
combining democracy and empire
is true of all time, and that it is
only possible that states so governed
can control distant provinces when
they delegate their rights or prero
gatives to one man or few men, as
the case may be, controlled, of
course, ultimately by the right
judgement of all citizsns' embodied
in their representatives, but left to
us their own in the general conduct
of affairs. The acquisition of empire
must in time, therefore, profoundly
modify the system of government
in the United States, though the
constitutional form may resist for
years to come.
But nothing can avert a fierce
struggle between president and
Senate. Every foreign entaglement
that appeals to the imagination of
the people and awakens their en
thusiasm will add to his power at
the expense of the Legislature.
The great increase in the armaments
of the United States, now in pro
gress, will not tend to diminish the
presidential prerogatives, for be is
the commander-in-chief of both
,army and navy, and his appeals iu
every message to the Legislature to
grant money for a large fleet are
singularly similar to those of the
German kaiser to the Reichstag.

"Saloon conditions on the islands
oi Maui and Hawaii are much bet
ter than on Oahu," is the opinion
of John M. Martin, who has been
spending the past few weeks on
those islands in the interest of the
Anti-Saloon League, according to
the 'Advertiser. A committee of
the citizens of Hilo have been ap
pointed, as a result of Mr. Martin's
visit, to look into the advisability
of forming a league there, while
